Kyrie Irving was the #1 draft pick in the 2011 NBA draft. But in this video you won’t recognize him as he has been completely remade into an old man. Why? To prank some “tough guys” on a basketball court, of course.
So here’s the setup. Irving had a great idea for a prank and brought in PepsiMax to take it to the next level. For the prank, Kyrie Irving was remade (face and body) to look like an old man. Along with another actor, portraying his nephew, they went to a pick-up game in New Jersey. PepsiMax told the players that they were doing a documentary on the actor named “Kevin”. Irving played the role of Kevin’s uncle… Uncle Drew.
So as the game starts, another plant fakes an injury. That’s when Kevin says that his Uncle Drew can fill in. So in comes old Uncle Drew and at first he plays like an old man. But that changes quickly and all the players are blown away and a massive crowd gathers at the court to see the old man play. It’s a great video prank! At the end they show how the makeup and transformation was accomplished.
